This reader presents a balanced collection of 16 administrative profiles of high-level government and nonprofit officials for course use. The profiles were originally published as part of a series for Public Administration Review. The profiles themselves cover a wide range of public service professionals at the local, state, and federal levels, and are written by a distinguished cast of authors. A concluding chapter by Riccucci pulls together and synthesizes the various themes of the profiles.

Part II covers Miner's significant research in the field, from his early work at the Atlantic Refining Company to his career-long leadership studies of Princeton University graduates. The chapters in Part III involve psychometric data analysis, meta-analysis, and factor analysis.
